Workshops, classes and day camps almost all year round.
Don’t miss this Garden for all seasons – where history, mystery and beauty reign all year. Located within Fort Raleigh National Historic Site next to The Lost Colony’s Waterside Theatre, The Elizabethan Gardens encompasses ten acres of botanical and sculptural delights.
Seasonal changes bring an array of flowering plants, shrubs and trees that draw visitors to return again and again. A monumental bronze sculpture of Queen Elizabeth I, ancient marble Italian statuary and the solitary figure of Virginia Dare provide continuity to constantly changing flora. Horticultural collections are extensive, and annual color planted every season gives The Gardens a different perspective throughout the year.
